Head Lice Shampoo

Head lice are tiny greyish-brown parasites that live on the scalp and are common among schoolchildren.

Head lice bite through the skin and live on the blood of the host, or person, who has lice. Female lice lay eggs that firmly attach to hair shafts.

Head lice are spread by direct head-to-head contact and sometimes by sharing items including combs, brushes, scarves, and hats with an affected person. 

Head lice prefer human heads rather than soft toys, hats and bedding, so hot washes or other pest control measures are not needed.

Head lice infestation has nothing to do with poor hygiene and can affect people of all social classes.

Symptoms of head lice

Bites from head lice can cause intense itching and irritation of the scalp.

After the female head louse lays eggs onto hair, usually near to the root, baby head lice hatch out after 7-10 days. The head lice are fully grown after another 9-10 days. Head lice die after around 3 weeks.

A person with head lice may also develop a rash on the nape of the neck.

Our shampoo for head lice

Age-appropriate over-the-counter and prescription treatments can be used to treat head lice by killing them. Our product is available in l shampoo form, and contain silicone and oil-based formulations.

Head lice eggs can be more difficult to treat because the insecticide lotions do not penetrate the eggshell to get in to the developing louse. Therefore, it may be necessary to repeat using our shampoo after seven days to kill lice emerging from any eggs that survived the first application.

How can head lice be prevented?

The best way to prevent lice is to avoid close physical contact with someone who has lice. It may also help to avoid sharing combs, brushes, towels, scarves, hats, clothes, and other objects. Examine and treat all members of your household who are found to have live headlice.
